Come on out to the 10th Annual Fall Fine Arts Festival

 

Saturday Sept. 6, 2014 
from 10am – 4pm
Southbury Green
Main Street South
Rain or Shine
Free Entry

This yearly celebration of the arts is hosted by the Southbury Women's Club and generously sponsored by Shop Rite, Southbury Music Studio, and Southbury Kitchens.

Over 50 artists selling one-of-a-kind photos, paintings,sculptures, handcrafted home goods, and art to wear will be present. 

The event will feature live music from Changes Urban Instrumental and musicians associated with the Southbury Music Studio, in addition to kid’s crafts, face painting, and delicious bake goods.

Laura Brown, Owner of the Jewelry Café and jewelry artist will offer demonstrations along with Maureen Henriques, a nationally known glass bead artist and teacher from The Brookfield Craft Center who will give a demonstration on Fusing Silver.   Pure silver (.999) wire is formed into various shapes and fused with a torch to create components (circles, teardrops...) for jewelry making.  Once the shapes are created, they are “work hardened” by hammering them and creating texture.   Watch them create contemporary silver circle jewelry! 

Demos will be offered at Noon and 2 pm.

100% of the proceeds from this annual event are donated to the local community to help those in need.

2014 Featured Artists



John Rettenmeier – Rettenmeier Woodcarving

(New FFAF Vendor)

John has been woodcarving since 1985 that started as a part time hobby and eventually turned into a part time business.  He has sold his work since 1988.

John’s carvings are all carved from eastern pine, milled right here in eastern Connecticut. The carvings are done one at a time, by hand. He use gauges and knives to do most of the work. He uses water based latex paint, add some stain for a nice patina look, and when complete they are finished with a hard wax to give it protection for many years to come.  His work includes: songbirds, ducks, shorebirds, fish, folk art, seasonal items, folk art wood signs and whatever else he gets the urge to carve.  John’s goal is to offer a very quality carving at an affordable price and for people to enjoy American hand crafted items.  Each carving is signed, dated and comes with a tag.
